Con­sis­tent good work elim­i­nates sur­prises

Central Otago Mirror - - NEWS - By JO McKEN­ZIE-McLEAN

Un­like many anx­ious teenagers pow­er­ing up their com­put­ers ur­gently to check NCEA re­sults, one Cromwell teenager was in no hurry, qui­etly con­fi­dent she had passed. The New Zealand Qual­i­fi­ca­tions Au­thor­ity re­leased the NCEA re­sults last week, end­ing a sum­mer of anx­i­ety for more than 143,000 stu­dents. Cromwell Col­lege year 13 stu­dent Ally Car­line, 17, said she was not wor­ried about check­ing her re­sults im­me­di­ately and logged on when she fin­ished work af­ter be­ing prompted by her mum Steph. ‘‘I wasn’t wor­ried about it but I was happy I passed.’’ As she ex­pected, hav­ing done well through the year, she passed earn­ing a mix­ture of merit grades and achieve­ments. She was pleased her com­puter did not crash as it did last year when the qual­i­fi­ca­tion au­thor­ity’s web­site was plagued by prob­lems.
